Using a cellphone while driving is against the law in the state of California. However, this does not stop motorists from reading texts, scrolling social media, and answering emails while they are out on the road. Texting while driving causes mental, manual, and visual distraction. On average, texting drivers take their eyes off the road for 4.6 seconds at a time. At 55 miles per hour, that is enough time to drive the length of a football field.

Each car accident case is unique and calls for customized representation. However, there are general principles for proving driver negligence in a California personal injury lawsuit.
State laws say that it is illegal to drive while holding a cell phone for any reason. It is also illegal to manipulate a cell phone that is mounted on the dashboard unless the action can be done with a single tap or swipe.
If we can prove that the defendant was violating one of these two laws and that this was a substantial factor contributing to your collision, then you have a good chance of winning a settlement or verdict.
Texting while driving is still a common problem in California, and we want to help make it a thing of the past. By pursuing a case, you can help with this effort.
